Frico with potatoes

It weighed 300 kilos - and baked in a pan three metres in diameter: the largest frico in the world, made by the Udine chefs' association at the Caseus Veneti cheese festival. But even small, the national dish of Friuli - a crispy flat cake of Montasio cheese, sometimes enriched with onions and potatoes, sometimes with pears - is a delight.


  • Sauté the diced onions in butter, add the thinly sliced potatoes.
  • Pour in the stock and cook the potatoes until done.
  • When the liquid in the pan has reduced, add the grated cheese.
  • Leave to brown until a brown crust forms around the edges, keep draining off the fat.
  • Serve hot under a bed of rocket.
